Spring FeverBy MaldororA gut-bustingly funny romp through the land of KakaIru love. Quote: “He'd tried to get the Expenses Department to reimburse the cost of his Icha Icha Paradise collection under the header of 'ninjutsu resistance training', but the harridan at the head of that office hadn't been impressed by his arguments.”No, Seriously. Just read it.Spring FeverThe Perfect TrapBy MaldororMore comedic genius from Maldoror. Kakashi gets caught in his own trap, and who better to help him than Iruka?Quote: “Pakkun had been horrified at the whole idea (particularly when he'd been told about his role in the scenario); the dog had felt offended on behalf of Kakashi's dignity. Which didn't make any sense: Kakashi kept his sense of dignity in his kunai holder.”The Perfect TrapFluffy Undead Loveand the sequal,Fluffy Undead VictoryBy HarukamiPURE. CRACK. Zabuza/Haku.

DEATHNOTE:Office Politics by rageprufrockAhem. There is funny, and then there is 'Office Politics'. Raito and L, being strange and dysfunctional as per usual. Love makes people do crazy things. It doesn't help much when the people in question are pretty crazy to begin with. L, being a much-lauded and world-renowned genius with several increasingly nonsensical and obscure aliases, should have known from the start that the relationship wasn't going to work out.Office PoliticsHome is where the Heart isby HarukamiCute, fluffy, bizarre RoyxEd fluff. The Fuhrer and the Fullmetal Alchemist pick out curtains. Home is Where the Heart isThese Are Theby WhitecatSubtly introspective, quietly painful. A Havoc gen drabble. Beautiful. Heartbreaking. Havoc and memories of Ishbar.These Are TheYami no MatsuiClicheBy HarukamiShort, sweet, fluffy, adorable. As well as one of the best last lines ever. Harukami takes a yaoi-fic cliche and makes you love it. Tsuzuki and Hisoka must pose as gay lovers to solve a crime. Which usually means a vomit-inducing trip through fanfiction hell, but this is just perfect. And funny.Cliche
Yes, it's Roy/Ed. Yes, it has a fair amount of sex in it. But what makes this story special, what separates it from just about every other fic I've ever read, is the realness that pervades every line. The relationship between Roy and Ed isn't flowery, love-at-first-sight, fiery passion, or perfect. It's awkward, and confusing, and a little selfish. It's outrageously funny. It's painful (both physically and emotionally). It's falling in love with someone even when you know you shouldn't. Ed is young, scared (though he'll never admit it), and selfish. Roy is in love, jealous, and absolutely terrified. It's intricate, honest, and sad. It ripped my heart out of my chest via my throat, tore my soul in two, but I didn't care. Because it took them, put them back together, and made everything fit. It's a story about love, about falling apart, and about rebuilding.It's beautiful. The Adventures of Roy Mustang: Sex Ed Teacher(the title leads you to believe that this is a funny bit of nonsense. Do not be fooled.)
HARRY POTTERThe Readerby AjaWhy should you read this fic? Because it hurts. It hurts so good. Harry, Draco, death, war, poetry, love. It doesn't get much better than this.The ReaderThe Wildfire Series: A Spark, Wherever the Wind Blows, and Everything on Fireby AbbyCadabraIf The Reader hurt, then this fic takes your heart, tears it into little pieces, burns the pieces, and then pisses on the ashes. The writing is tense, and painful, and perfect. AbbyCadabra can do things with language that I never thought possible. It's brilliant. A SparkWherever the Wind BlowsEverything on FireMapmakersby CasiraOrder of the Pheonix through the eyes of Fred and George. But so much more than that. The mapmakers tell the story of how the Marauder's Map was made, and at the same time, say things without saying anything. Fred and George grow up. Beautiful. MapmakersI'd reccomend pretty much anything by Alena - aka fire_tears - because OH MY GOD she makes my soul hurt in such a beautiful way. My personal favorites are:TransformationThough deadly in battle, Zoro has never actually been a demon. Not until now.Zoro/Luffy, Angst, and.... WOW. angst.Fairy TalesBecause even those are just lies, in the end. oh. my. goodness. just... read it.Placement of BlameDeathfic. ouch. good. (have been rendered speechless.)And to make up for all the angst of the above stories, I give you....Making SexLuffy has made yet another kitchen raid, and Zoro doesn’t mind playing along.*squee* So cute.VanillaLuffy discovers the joys of ice cream. So does Zoro, in a different way.No, I'm not just pimping Alena's fics 'cause she's my friend. They're REALLY good. Seriously. Go read them. NOW.
